The Hite Amish Quilt Collection

The Western Colorado Center for the Arts, 1803 N. 7th Street, Grand Junction, CO 81501
The Western Colorado Center for the Arts is to show Henry and Angela Hites Amish Quilt Collection this year. Previously The Art Center has shown The Hite's collection of Hawaiian and Maryland Appliqué . The Hites are dedicated and passionate quilt collectors who do an impressively thorough job archiving and preserving significant quilt collections. The Amish quilts, with their diverse range of patterns and colors, are especially inventive. Some date as far back as the nineteenth century, while still others are contemporary. Quilting is a lesson in patience, and each quilt speaks to its maker's personality.
